Hello and welcome to the HyFlex Learning Community. We are a community of educators working together to improve student access to high-quality and equitable learning by using Hybrid-Flexible (HyFlex) learning environments. HyFlex learning experiences are available in the classroom or online, and support students in choosing which participation mode is best for them. (For more about HyFlex, visit the FAQ page.)
Together, we’re building the Hybrid-Flexible future for our current students and those to come.

Next Gathering (webinar) Scheduled: May 12, 2022
Topic: Community-Sourcing a HyFlex Course Quality Rubric
We’ve scheduled our next gathering event (webinar) for May 12, 9 am – 10 am PDT (GMT/UTC -7) to begin “community-sourcing” a HyFlex course evaluation rubric. Many of us use rubrics to evaluate the quality of online course design (and sometimes teaching), but how many have this for their HyFlex courses? None we know of. Let’s build one together for all of us to use. We will share a cloud-based rubric for the community to add to and use as desired. Bring your ideas, questions, and comments, and join us live online if you can.

HyFlex Learning Community Achievement Badges: We’ve implemented achievement badges for full participation in HyFlex learning Community workshops that provide evidence of learning and meeting outcomes. Our first two badges, HyFlex Fundamentals and HyFlex Planning are awarded at the conclusion of the HyFlex Course Design workshop. Several dozen participants have already received their badges, through badgr.com. Additional workshops (in development) will also award corresponding achievement badges. More about badges here.
